Kurt Zouma is already back in the gym working on his recovery according to Football.London in what is a huge injury boost for West Ham.
The 27-year-old suffered a serious injury during our win over Chelsea two weeks ago.
After damaging a hamstring tendon, Zouma was believed to be facing around three-four months on the sidelines according to The Guardian.
The Frenchman moved to the London Stadium from Chelsea in the summer for just under £30 million (The Evening Standard).
And Zouma made an immediate impact at West Ham.
The partnership that the 27-year-old forged with Angelo Ogbonna really was one of the best in the Premier League.
Ogbonna then suffered a serious ACL injury in November and not long after Zouma was ruled out for the long-term. It seems as though there could be some good news for the Hammers fans though.
West Ham injury boost
Football.London claims that Zouma is already back in the gym working on his recovery.
Considering that he sustained his injury just two weeks ago, that really is a massive boost for David Moyes.
Especially considering our recent struggles in the Premier League.
The Hammers’ clash with Norwich today was cancelled earlier in the week whilst it remains uncertain as to whether our marches over the course of the next few weeks will go ahead.
It will actually do us a huge favour if the Premier League decides that a few weeks break in the schedule is needed in order to stem the flow of positive Covid cases.
Football.London’s report on Zouma is a hugely positive one. Sure, he will still be a long way from playing again.
But it seems as though he is well ahead of schedule and the original prognosis of three-four months out may well be well off the mark.
